    I know I'm biased (I'm American), but these were my favorite special edition Barricades:

    The Bryans wore them. Very sharp. I'm hoping for something similar for next year's Olympics.

    it's like captain america threw up on a shoe. not a fan of the dragon shoes either.

    i tend to like simple and clean designs

    They are truly one of the ugliest shoes ever made - no matter what colour they may be. imo.

    Some more pandering to the giant Asian market by Adidas.

    This one is also in contention for the title of "ugliest shoe ever made", IMO:

    It looks like the shoes have magical powers and made Murray's head shrink. Is it just me or does his noggin look particularly undersized there? And a follow-up question, if Murray's head did shrink, would it be an improvement to his game? Discuss amongst yourselves...

    I agree. For the life of me I can't see how anyone could think the Barricade looked any good.

    Well, to be frank, I actually like this colorway of the Barricade:

    I would like it if the red outlines of dragons were all over the shoe and less silver

    I think Andy looks more mature (don't know if there is something to do with his hair cut). He plays very consistent throughout the tournament. His strokes looked quite boring in TV, but seeing him playing live is a totally different experience. He hits the ball harder and clean with more consistency, pretty robotic. His forehand and serve are damn good. I'd regret if I didn't see him playing live.

    WOW, sometimes I wonder if you and I will EVER agree on a single thing...

    PS. The Barricade post below actually answered it for me :)

    lol, There are a lot of ATP pros that can make any gear look cool, but Murray - he can take just about any piece of gear and associate it with nerdy!!! :)

    Adidas was smart with trying to appeal to the huge Asian market IMO.... I like the new dragons though. They are more 'exciting' than the super boring normal barricades. For me, at least. :)

    Hey, I just realized that Adidas has done something quite brilliant with the design. The Chinese can be proud that the shoes show the dragon, a creature revered in China. For everyone else, they can think they are making a statement of protest against the Chinese govt. by stepping on the dragon.
